The Gleason Grading System

A Complete Guide for Pathologist and Clinicians

Jonathan I. Epstein

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 224

"The Gleason Grading System: A Complete Guide for Pathologists and Clinicians" provides exhaustive coverage of the updated "Gleason Grading System", which deals not only with pathology but also with the associated clinical correlations and prognosis. "The Gleason Grading System" is the most important prognostic marker of prostate cancer, which is critical to patient management and drives therapies across all disciplines dealing with prostate cancer. In addition to an extensive number of photographs, this book discusses in detail clinically related issues that are crucial for the urologist, radiotherapist, and oncologist to know, such as predicting upgrading and downgrading from needle biopsy to radical prostatectomy, risk of Gleason grading change over time, significance of tertiary grade patterns, and prognosis and implications related to various Gleason scores and different therapies. Images that were particularly difficult for contributing pathologists sent in for consultation are used in addition to classic examples, as these cases are the most informative in showing the difficulties with Gleason grading. This book is a valuable tool not only for surgical pathologists from the resident level to seasoned practitioners but also for urology residents, urologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists.

Prostate Cancer

Hedvig Hricak, Peter Scardino

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 242

Prostate cancer is one of the most common malignancies in men in the Western world. Although a wide range of treatment regimens are available for this disease, there are few evidence-based guidelines for treatment selection. This volume describes the clinical value of imaging for improving not only staging and treatment selection, but also the diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up for patients with prostate cancer. A multidisciplinary disease management approach is critical in this disease. For the radiologist, understanding the pathophysiology, critical clinical issues, and advantages and limitations of different treatments is essential for meaningful interpretation of imaging studies. Similarly, for the practising clinician, understanding the advantages and limitations of imaging modalities and the importance of optimal technique are crucial to the rational use of imaging. This volume serves as a valuable reference for radiologists, urologists, medical and radiation oncologists and all practitioners involved in the management of prostate cancer.

Carcinoma of the Bladder

David MacVicar

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 194

Bladder cancer is a common and dangerous malignancy which is associated with a variety of known and unknown environmental factors. Clinical management and surgical techniques prioritise detection and treatment of early tumours, which form the majority of newly diagnosed cancers. Imaging is central to establishing the presence of more advanced disease, for which a variety of treatment options exist, including radical curative surgery with or without bladder reconstruction, radiation therapy with curative or palliative intent, and systemic or local chemotherapy. Imaging techniques continue to evolve and this volume explores the relevance of CT with multidetector array, MRI, and computer-based reconstructions such as 'virtual cystoscopy' to treatment choices in today's practice. A review of follow-up strategies and the imaging appearances of treated disease is presented, along with descriptions of modern surgical techniques, radiotherapy and chemotherapy regimens.

Carcinoma of the Kidney

Uday Patel

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 256

The last two decades have seen ground-shifting changes in the epidemiology, genetics, diagnosis and management of renal cancer. Advances in diagnosis have led to many tumours being identified at an asymptomatic stage. There have also been parallel advances in treatment, such as nephron sparing procedures and radiologically guided ablative procedures. However, these changes have brought with them dilemmas such as our ability to evaluate the nature and aggressiveness of early stage tumours and how best to identify those patients who will benefit most from early treatment. This practical, clinically-oriented volume focuses on these current diagnostic and clinical challenges, making it relevant to all members of the multidisciplinary cancer care team.

Prostate Cancer

Arthur T. Skarin, John Logue
e altri

editore: Mosby

pagine: 144

Considerable progress is being made in the field of oncology, and the rapid expansion of available information can often make it difficult for the busy practitioner to know which decisions are most appropriate in a given circumstance. The success of the "Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Atlas of Diagnostic Oncology" has led to the development of a series of disease management handbooks designed to aid the clinician with his or her decision making in clinical practice. Written by highly eminent authors, each title is produced in full color and is richly illustrated throughout, providing a review of each cancer including its incidence, epidemiology, etiology and histopathology, together with the clinical features. Diagnostic studies and current clinical and pathological staging are also given. Detailed tables are provided with histopathological classification, diagnostic studies and, when important, prognostic factors. Current therapies are also discussed in detail, together with useful algorithms to aid treatment decisions. Practical issues relating to management are also given such as dealing with systemic and mucocutaneous reactions to chemotherapy, including alopecia, fatigue and extravasation.

Challenges in Prostate Cancer

Adam Carter, Winsor Bowsher

editore: Blackwell Publishing Ltd

pagine: 296

Prostate cancer continues to be a major threat to men's health, the second most common cancer in men, in many countries. Therefore it is increasingly important that those faced with difficult clinical questions make the right decisions. Since the first volume was published in 2000, many debates persist but new controversies have also emerged, reflected in the chapters of this new volume. New authors have been recruited to give their insight into newer areas of this controversial topic. Challenges in prostate cancer provides a series of state-of-the-art review articles, each of which addresses and answers a contentious question. It includes chapters on medical and surgical management of all stages of prostate cancer, clinical investigation, epidemiology, clinical trials and basic scientific research and covers issues such as the genetic basis of cancer, clinical economics and influence. The authors have used their expertise to distil the available evidence into practical advice to be used by busy urologists in their day-to-day practice. And as well as being an overview of current practice many chapters attempt to give insights into the future direction of prostate cancer research and clinical management.
